The Long Awaited Book

The long awaited book made it to my mailbox this week.

  Absolutely Beautiful Things
A Bright And Colourful Life
By
Anna Spiro

The title describes, accurately, the style of, designer, Anna Spiro.

I realized, the other day, that I had been following her style since I first found her in an Australian copy of Vogue Magazine, September/October of 2009.
What drew me to this photo in "Vogue" was not only did I love the wallpaper but the Annechovie jar print hanging in the art cluster on the wall caught my eye as well! I ended up purchasing Annechovie's work for resale in my shop.

The book is full of beautiful color, textiles, vignettes and the authors signature pink. Her decorating wisdoms ring so true.

Enjoy the scenery.

I Love Facebook

Where else, in the morning, can a mother find out what her sons are up to? Timothy has been published! Christopher played bass for Kid Rock last night! Thank you Facebook.

Here's my article on queer ecology and Wordsworth for ISLE.

Monday Afternoon Tide Coming In

The Atlantic Ocean.

The tide was coming in one big heave and we just had time to make it out.

Sitting on Porpoise Point we remarked, "we have the place all to ourselves!"

We were the last car off the point, almost became marooned!

Laughing Gulls laughing at us!

The surge of the waves crashing into shore.

All stirred up and foamy.

Remember to read the tide charts next time, it was a close call!

Honey, I'm Home

I love walking into this tiny little home.

Standing at the front door looking in.

We drove and we drove and we drove...pretty clear sailing all the way.

So happy to be here safe and sound.
